Poetry and the appearance of simplicity could define the work and image of Ivette Nadal, but it would be too general and imprecise a view of an artist who lives immersed in detail, in nuance and in subtlety. Ever since she first appeared five years ago with a guitar in one hand and a carnation in the other performing on the city’s alternative bars and clubs circuit, Ivette Nadal has established the strength of her proposal from the fragility of her spirit. Once she had carved out an opening for herself with a first album that was the sweetest of calling cards, Guerres dolcíssimes, simultaneous to the publication of her first collection of poems, Camí privat, she created the new album that she is now presenting on stage, A l’esquena d’un elefant. A bundle of songs whose verses convey the desire to combine the relevance of the lyrics in harmony with the music where they shelter. Her proposal is one of those that reveal the grandeur to be found in simple things and establishes a degree of closeness with the listener, allowing an intimate and sincere connection.
Since he broke on to the country’s music scene, nearly five years ago now, Litus has been one of the most persistent names in the introduction of the new generation of singer-songwriters. About to turn thirty and a native of Terrassa, behind his youth is the brave and decisive look of an artist who wants to share his particular vision of the world around him. A musician and a songwriter who gave over 350 concerts with his first album, El sur del cielo, and who now has a new album under his arm, Si tiene que llover que nieve, and who seeks to continue to grow in experience and recognition. The coordinates of his music aesthetics lie in figures in the English-speaking school of the genre, such as James Taylor, Carole King and Nick Drake, even though he is able to imbue these influences with a personal and non-transferable aroma contained in the stories he tells. The day-to-day and the attention to small things that populate his songs generate a feeling of highly welcoming closeness.
